So for the sake of argument, based off that 316M number it's 158M per year.
I have no idea how many people are on this list, but lets say there are
20,000 of which say only 10,000 actually keep an archive. That's roughly 1.5
Tb for each year that's being replicated across everyone's mailbox.

Not too bad.
